A YORK PR and marketing agency is marking its 25th anniversary with a £25,000 charity challenge.

The Partners Group is aiming to raise £25,000 during 2013 for two charities through a number of fundraising activities including the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge on June 9.

The two chosen charities are Speakability, a national charity dedicated to supporting people with aphasia, a communications disability caused by damage to the language centres of the brain, and Young Carers Revolution, part of York Carers Centre, which gives young carers a voice.

Monica Green, director of the Partners Group, said: “This is an ambitious challenge for us and we hope our clients, contacts, families and friends will all support us – either by making a donation from the comfort of their chairs or by putting on their walking boots and joining us for the 25-mile trek.

“We have deliberately chosen to support two lesser-known charities with links to communication and our aim is to help boost their profiles as well as their funds for the good work they do.”
